I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL).
The interview process was relatively quick. The recruiter reached out via LinkedIn and after introductions scheduled a phone screen. After the initial phone screen with the recruiter was a technical phone interview with two or three developers. The next stage is generally a code test, though that may be waived depending on various factors. Lastly was a 3.5-4 hour in person interview in the office. This interview generally has 3 or 4 parts, some more technical than others and may depend on the specific role under consideration.
- Given an input that consists of two parts, the first being a string representing the layout of an airplane's interior (like "ABC$DEF" where the "$" represents the aisle) and the second being a list of strings that indicate which seats are occupied on a given row, produce an output that shows which seats are open and which are occupied. The output had a specific format. Answer Question
- A burglar is attempting to maximize the amount taken from a set of houses on a street. However, the burglar cannot steal from consecutive houses. First, how would you maximize the amount taken from the houses if no values are known ahead of time? Second, if values are known ahead of time, how would you maximize? Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.
It was a waiting game. No prompt reply to emails nor phone calls. After the day of some major event in Chicago, I was supposed to be interviewed in the morning but it happen that nobody called for the phone screening. I was called the next day with a strange excuse but we gonna say that I believed them (So unprofessional!!!). I was invited to in-person interview. It went pretty well beside one person of the panel who took all answers as a treat to his service. It seems like he didn't want any change and apparently wasn't interested in good IT governance. He was wearing a horrible soccer jacket that made the interview even harder. I could recall one person of the panel who was very knowledgeable. She knew exactly was she was doing and what she was asking (She was the hiring manager). She was being promoted as she really deserved it. Otherwise the rest of the panel spent more time talking about the beers in the fridge than the job itself ping pong table. At the end I am glad that I didn't get the job because you want to be surrounded by professionals and not people who pretend.
- 1. You want to talk about yourself for each individual. 2. Know the story of the company, educate yourself on the technology they use. 3. Depending on the position, there will be a person who will challenge you technically. 4. Show that you want job of the person you interviewing for, it will show you hungry. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL).
The interview process started with a quick screening phone interview then proceeded into what ended up as seven different interviews (two trips into the office). These interviews included a FaceTime interview, 1:1 face-to-face interviews and a conference call. The whole process spanned over 3 months and seemed pretty positive. After all that, they decided to go with an internal candidate. It was very frustrating in the end.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.
Interview process was very pleasant and efficient. I applied online and within two weeks scheduled an initial phone screening with an HR recruiter. We then moved forward with a phone interview with the hiring manager within two days, and I flew in for the in-person interviews (5 interviews, each with a separate team member) the following week. Hiring decision was made that day, and I received the offer the next business day. Throughout the process the HR manager kept me well-informed and the entire team was lovely and energetic. I couldn't wait to join them!

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL).
First there was a phone screening and then an in person interview about a week later. Scheduling was difficult because they kept changing the available times to come in. They also kept changing which shifts were available. There were two guys and one woman who interviewed me. The guys were more conversational and sounded like they had taken the time to read my resume. The woman read from a list of standard interview questions. Negative opinion because of the way they kept changing the interview and position availabilities.

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.
Such a waste of time!! I went through 6 six interviews for nothing. I didn't get an offer because they said I seem stressed out during the interview. But they told me I asked the best questions out off all the candidates,was very well prepared, and had a lot of good examples. I think it's absolutely crazy to not get an offer because I seemed stressed out. I wasn't even stressed out at the interview, I answered every question thoughtfully. The real reason they didn't hire me is because I'm African American. The Revenue a Management does not have any African American employees. To say I perform the best during the process but not hire me says a lot about the company. Truth is the company only have 5 African Americans in the corporate office. They don't care about diversity at all. I've lost complete respect for the company. I'm glad I didn't get the job. I just hate i wasted all that time going through the interview process. I thought Orbitz was better than that. The Revenue Management team at Orbitz does not care about diversity or the effort candidates put up.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.
First step was a phone interview with recruiter. Then in about a week I had a phone interview with a hiring manager and then in about 2 weeks I had interview at the office. One week after that I got an offer.
- I wasn't asked "favorite" interview questions like "Where do you see yourself in 5 years" and " Tell me about your weakness". Mostly questions were related to the skills and experience I have. I felt very comfortable during the interview and it was more like a conversation, not interrogation. I liked that a lot. Answer Question
